About the composer

Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy

Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy

A German composer, conductor, pianist, and organist who already numbered among the most important composers in Europe during his lifetime. While still young he found a unique tonal language. Reflected in his oeuvre, which spans all genres, are the contradictory tendencies of the age – Classicism and Romanticism.

Die für Flöte angeglichene Stimme weist Mendelssohn als genialen Bearbeiter und großen Kenner der flötenspezifischen Notwendigkeiten aus. (...) Die Henle-Ausgabe besticht durch ein schönes Notenbild und gute Wendestellen, Bogensetzung, Artikulation und dynamische Bezeichnungen entsprechen denen der Violinstimme. Die Einzelstimme kann mit der revidierten Edition des Trios HN 957 verwendet werden. [Tibia, 2017]
